The Slumber Squad
Hi, I'm Tiffany Hilgenberg
Pediatric Sleep Specialist
Welcome! I am a Certified Pediatric Sleep Consultant with the specially trained, and talented Tiny Transitions Slumber Squad. Born and raised in a small Iowan suburb, I appreciate close-knit, personalized connections, and pride myself on bringing that experience to all my clients!
As a wife of a first responder, and a mother of a loving boy, Haze, I know first-hand how long, lonely, and quite frankly hopeless your nights may seem with a child; And that’s why I became a Pediatric Sleep Consultant to help you know that You. Are. Not. Alone. I am here to bring you HOPE, and SLEEP!
I remember my husband leaving for his routine 24-hour shift the 3rd day we got home from the hospital… “I got this we’ll be fine.. Be safe, I love you, see you in the morning!” Then the crying, unsettledness, yawning, pure exhaustion, fear, anxiety set in. I knew from then on that if I was going to be doing overnights alone very routinely I needed help, I needed sleep, I needed support. I needed HOPE!
It was then that I started researching and educating myself on a gentle sleep method used by Tiny Transitions and the Slumber Made Simple™ Approach. Soon our nights began to seem a little less hopeless, a lot more restful, and I began to feel like a loving, capable mother that I always dreamed of being! (Some days I even felt like a Superhero Mom!) I quickly learned the more I educated myself on my little one’s scientific & biological sleep mechanisms, that I was able to better emphasize with him and better able to be the mom he needed me to be!
Many years of being a Childcare Professional, and a few years as a Licensed Dental Assistant in the Pediatric field has filled my heart with a passion for pediatrics and given me insightful experience with the astonishing minds of children. My passion, experience, desire to help families like yours, Courtney’s generosity in bringing me onto the Tiny Transitions Team, extensive training, and guided support has led me to where I am today- here and ready to support, guide, and help you!
We all want to be superhero parents, but it is nearly impossible when you are running on sleep deprivation mode. I am thrilled to learn more about you and help bring your family HOPE and much-needed sleep, by implementing gentle sleep approaches and methods!
